Willow Penguin Sculpture workshop ( South Hampshire)



Create a small willow penguin one of the quirkiest of birds. This workshop is aimed at all levels of experience although I would recommend that you attend a beginners workshop first, Please note that the amount of detail that you will achieve will vary from person to person If you are not sure and this is your first workshop it is a good idea to attend a small activity workshop first . My aim is for you to have completed the shape and fillled it in if you still need to add some more details at the end of the day I will send you home with some willow to complete it in the next day or two. The workshops that I offer fall into two categories: 1. Activities for students who are suitable for beginners and those with some experience: Large wild birds e.g wildfowl, herons egrets, geese, etc, duck/chickens, pheasants, peacocks, flamingo, owls, penguins Small animals hares, piglets. snow people Shapes and functional items e.g. medium-sized globes and fruit e.g. apples and pears, and items for the garden such as plant climbers, bird feeders and bird houses , Small items workshop which includes bird feeders, hearts and flowers, Christmas decorations e.g Xmas trees, wreaths, angels, etc, garden items such as obelisks and other similar items Beginners basketry - hedgerow and foraging crafts 2. Workshops that are better for students with some experience of willow sculpture: Fox, medium pig, deer, mushrooms, large spheres, cats and small dogs. Just a little about myself: I have many years of experience of teaching crafts and I offer a range of different crafting activities including willow sculpture and introduction to basket weaving and willow lantern making activities.
